This enjoyable western has a woman rancher as the main character, but her six old devoted cowboys play equal parts throughout. It is set in Pecos, Texas at the turn of the century,as the old west is quickly vanishing. The decision to make one last big trail drive to Abilene, Kansas is the main thrust of this epic story. It is filled with dangers, death, love, Texas Rangers, a couple of unlikely killers, and the fulfillment of a young man's dream. The Chisholm Trail drive is accurately portrayed, as well as locations along the way.Myers has captured the reality of a changing West, and the old cowboys who find the change a hard pill to swallow.
